Focal Elear is a full size open back headphone with detachable 3m OFC cable. They are built in France alongside Focal's best speakers, look and feel very durable, with leather headband, aluminum arms and replaceable earpads. Elear has a spacious sound with a warmer, smoother feel to the music, rather than a being bright or neutral.
The Elear has a deeply padded headband and earpads and very little clamping pressure for excellent comfort. These are designed for use in a quiet space and are meant to be used with a quality headphone amp. We are getting great results with our Mytek Brooklyn in store, the new RME ADI 2 DAC and the excellent little iFi xDSD, for example.
The Focal Elear reviews are uniformly positive.
Innerfidelity.com: The Focal Elear is a drop-dead gorgeous high-end headphone. Build quality is spectacular; comfort is very good (though the cable is a bit heavy); and the new purpose built aluminum/magnesium M-dome drive is a testament to the technical accumen of Focal. Sound quality is superb; this is an extraordinarily dynamic and punchy headphone. Unlike most high-end headphones, the Focal Elear seem to have no Achilles heal. It's very easy to just get wrapped up in the music and be unaware of the headphones themselves
